White Moose Protection, MMA 43
Special protection has been provided for a rare and interesting white moose that currently resides on the Port au Port Peninsula, MMA 43. Sightings of this particular moose are common and local residents have assumed a stewardship responsibility towards this unique animal. Hunters who hold a valid moose hunting licence for MMA 43 should be aware that these licences are not valid to shoot moose that are predominately white in color.
